A Kat Production
Your eight-year-old nephew’s name is Bradley, but your own kids have started calling him “Bratley”, as he is willful and somewhat spoiled. Your brother and his wife do spank him, but their spankings are, in you opinion, a joke. They are very light smacks over the seat of his trousers, to which he reacts as though he is being killed. You have observed that within seconds after a spanking, he is completely recovered – and usually right back into mischief. You suspect that Bratley has learned to manipulate his parents with his histrionics.
The spankings you give your own kids are by no means over the top, but they are effective enough that they invariably result in real, as opposed to crocodile, tears. You once gave Bratley a single hard smack that seemed to outrage him more than hurt him. Nevertheless, he minded you quite well for a long time afterwards.
You have Bratley for the weekend while his parents are out of town to attend a wedding. He seems to have forgotten the sting of that smack, as he has been a handful. You have already reminded him that you have permission to spank him, and you warn him he won’t like it if you do.
Now your ten-year-old son Tommy comes to get you because Bratley is torturing the family tomcat. Poor Winston is too good-natured a cat to bite or scratch, or Bratley would have already learned his lesson. You find Bratley holding on to Winston’s tail while the cat desperately tries to get free.
Is Bratley about to find out what one of your spankings is like? If so, what can he expect?
